“Not worth it!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We stayed there for 5 nights. we were tow couples with kids

overpriced! 120 USD for a room for a couple with 2 kids under two in a hotel with NO service what so ever.

The wifi internet works sometimes (rather less than more) and only downstairs (not in the rooms)
No tours or info available about anything, even in town info (restaurants etc)
Not children friendly: no cots, no high chairs, tile floors in the rooms AND in the toilet, even showe,r with not even a USD 2 mat to avoid slipping. Find your own way with kids in this hotel (at least they allowed me to use their fridge but some snearing from the owner)
Breakfast is poor and boring: omelet on a chewy bun and nescafe. The pool is smaller than what it looks on the internet (literally is 4X4). the put chlorine and they dont advice that you cant swim.
Mosquitoes in the rooms and not a single remedy for it. Just " do not open the windows".
Very poor English from the staff, which is not an issue for me. Although i have to say that the 2 staff members I met were nice.
the rooms are nicely clean every day...as they are in any 2 star hotel for half of the price.

I do not recommend this hotel for this price. I know some people were paying less for the rooms so check for cheaper prices but get ready to find your own way around.

The hotel is about 10 mins walk to town centre and in a residential area. Rooms are clean & airconditioned with free wifi. Stayed for 4 nights and very comfortable stay with helpful staff. Breakfast is usually juice, bread and eggs with tea/ coffee. This is part of 2 weeks holiday package so not sure if it's good value but no complaints at all. Check out the terrace which gives a great view of Puerto Ayora.

I booked this hotel after reading the raving reviews on Trip Advisor, however, I have to admit I was sceptical at first, as the place sounded too good to be true and I was worried that upon arrival my expections would not be met and that I would be disappointed. I have to say, from the second I arrived all of my fears immediately vanished

This hotel is very beautiful and the staff were lovely and is within walking distance of the main street (around 5 mins max). We stayed for a total of 4 nights and was always greeted with smiles. The breakfast is the usual eggs, bread and jam with juice, our water bottles were filled each morning when we asked. The rooms are large and spacious, i would recommend asking for a room on level 2 or above as the views are beautiful. Our room had a private bathroom, airconditioner and flat screen TV which was nice to unwind after long days in the sun. Overall, a very clean and enjoyable place to stay. Would definitely stay again.

Quite excellent. Judy and all her staff, and Patricio, were at all times so helpful and welcoming. I returned for an extra day and was greeted like a long term friend. Thank you all. Both rooms were very comfortable, with all you could want.

Really nice staff

I stayed here twice as part of a volunteer program. The rooms are large spacious and clean. The second time I stayed I was fortunate to get a new room on the 3rd floor that overlooked the bay. Sitting on the balcony looking at this was delightful. Judy, the owner, is the icing on the cake. She is delightful, helpful and and made the place feel like home.
